Welcome to MNKYvision
Hello thanks for popping by! Here's some basic info:
I'm Mark Hooley, aka MNKY - I'm an artist and I love to create all kinds of things... from Sketchbook Scribbles, Digital illustration & Design, Screenprints, to Paintings on Canvas (or any surface - from cardboard to brick) and much more.
Please have a browse through the various styles and images, and feel free to get in touch if you like something you see,
or if you'd like to commission something - from digital works, to portraits, to murals in your home!
I've included a new LIFELONG Members option, which gets you discounts, free music, extra content
and a delightful sense of belonging!
You can also download for free some CubKids Colour Me In pages while everyone is stuck at home.
Hope you have enough crayons and the kids enjoy them!
If you like, you can also now donate to my Art Life... I'm currently so busy creating #PortraitsForNHSheroes I sometimes forget I need to earn a living!!
THANKS for considering it!
I saw that artist Tom Croft was calling for artists to get involved in supporting NHS workers during the Corona Virus Pandemic. I was very pleased to get involved in showing my support to as many workers, creating as many portraits as I can manage during Lockdown - in appreciation of all they endure, putting themselves at risk, for the benefit of everyone else, in recognition of how essential they are and how they should receive better support and deserve a pay rise!
Search instagram with #portraitsfornhsheroes to see more. I wish I could do more to help & I'd love if these were physical paintings rather than digital, as I’m limited at home.. although it also means I can create more!
I've created 30 so far, with a queue on the go, so I'm not taking any more requests.
Here are a selection (the masks and PPE are quite strong images) See Instagram for the rest.
We Are All Made From The Same Dust...
I'm creating portraits using Procreate on the iPad. I love the time-lapse video you get after creating on the app... I have asked my Facebook group followers to provide me with photos and now have over one hundred to get through. I have an end plan forming in my mind for this, but it is essentially practicing painting portraits. I have created some boundaries with colour, no 'undo' option, but I allow myself to break rules if I feel the need! I hope to get started on the real painting at some point soon - which is a bit tricky during LockDown!
If you become a Member you can become a part of this practice portraiture at a very nice price - see more
I have a variety of styles and when creating art I use:
Drawing, Painting, Silkscreen Printing, Spraying Paint; Freehand & with Stencils, Typography & Digital Tools, to create Portraits, illustration, Design, Paintings, Screenprinting, & Comic Art.
I also love to dream up Stories, Comics, Songs & Music, which I am continually working on.
I also create all kinds of private commissions:
please get in touch if you would like to have a piece of art devised for you, or as a gift for a loved one.
